Good points:
AV receiver excellent in all aspects!
Bad points:
RF range of remote control very short and very few appliances covered from which some not working well e.g. single key depression initiates double blaster command.

Paul, Colchester Keeping an open mind

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up using the supplied Mic with full Auto MCACC even if your speakers are not all the same size and make. All the connections you would possibly want USB, Bluetooth, Adaptor for I Pod, Internet control, to name but a few, all work seamlessly. Re - sound performance of amp driving the full 9 / 1 set up will blow you away the control of all frequencies at any volume is controlled through out either listening to music or DTS 7/1 HD surround. Now coming back down to earth some more good points, Latest 1-4 version HDMI connections also allowing active use in stand by mode, 6 in 2 out HDMI for TV monitor & projector maybe. Amp does not get too hot like older models if you were wanting to hide it away in a rack using RF remote control set up, Last but not least please read the operating instructions fully to get the most out of this receiver it is well written with good tips. It is worth spending time tweaking settings after auto set up for optimising main seating positions. Anyway after that just sit back and enjoy what this amp is capable of, extracting detail from movies you had not herd before on DVD and Up scale to 1080p utilising the Digital video conversion tools Brilliant.
Bad points:
Remote control a little cumbersome if like me your utilising every input & RF control to 4 other units, and illumination of keys not quite bright enough in the dark. You can use other learning remote's but you will loose the excellent RF two way cummunications with the amp, a small gripe.

Manufacturer's Description

Raw power and audio finesse combined.
Delivering a stunning 7 × 190W, the SC-LX83 is the Hercules of our AV receiver line-up. Its power goes hand in hand with finesse: behind the panel, the best components take care of a striking audio and video quality. It also features exhaustive connectivity and is DLNA certified.
Choosing for an LX Series receiver is choosing for a system that was assembled with the utmost attention. They use Direct Energy HD Amplifiers, built on ICEpower analogue class D technology. The engineers from the famous AIR Studios perform a meticulous inspection and fine-tuning. This way, what you hear is pure and as originally intended.
The latest HD audio and surround formats are supported. x.v.Colour and Deep Colour compliance guarantee excellent video quality. With HDMI 1.4a, the receiver is also ready for 3D content. Standard definition video can be upscaled to 1080p (HD).
Broad connectivity

Connect up to 6 sources via HDMI (including 1 front input) and enjoy the benefits of 2 HDMI outputs – installing a second screen or projector for example.
Moreover, a direct digital connection with your iPod or iPhone and the Advanced Sound Retriever to upscale compressed music allow for easy and high-quality listening of your portable music library. Our iControlAV application even lets you control your receiver with your iPhone or iPod touch (when integrated in your wireless home network).
Streaming via Bluetooth is possible – our proprietary Sound Retriever AIR restores sound quality lost during transmission.
Our intuitive GUI (Graphical User Interface) makes it easy to set up the system to your personal preferences.
